Chapters sprang up across Europe, even during World War II. After the war and during the occupation of Palestine, Betar was closely affiliated with Revisionist Zionist terror group Irgun and closely linked to the Herut and then Likud political parties of original Jewish occupiers. Israeli Prime Ministers Yitzhak Shamir and Menachem Begin, an admirer of Jabotinsky were Betarim in their youth.
